There are a lot of fabulous queers in the world. Gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transfolk (and all the beautiful identities in between) are spending their leisure time making the world a better place: helping community organizations fundraise, lobbying for equal rights against antiquated legislation or simply being funny and positive individuals. Why not throw a massive, viral internet party and celebrate them?
The ‘Queer of the Year’ contest has arrived. It’s equal parts “YouTube reality jovial-ness” and “genuine campaign to salute awesome queers.” And it’s pretty easy to enter. You submit a short video that attests to why you might be the ‘Queer of the Year.’ The upload it at queeroftheyearcontest.com. Then you get your friends to vote for you! (All the contest rules here.)
Five fab queers will be flown to Montreal from August 9 to 16, 2010 to compete for the final title.
Do you have what it takes?
So watch the above introductory video. Visit the ‘Queer of the Year’ website. Make a quick video. And maybe we’ll see you in Montreal!
